BEST NEIGHBORHOOD BODEGA FOR FLOWERS
Union Square Greenmarket, which is open until 6pm on Wednesday.

BEST PLACE TO ORDER FLOWERS IF YOU’RE FEELING FLUSH
Belle Fleur. Order by 2pm on February 13th for delivery on Valentine’s Day.

LAST-MINUTE LINGERIE
Forget La Perla. Just steal his button-down.

LAST-MINUTE GIFT FOR HER
Never underestimate the power of a sparkly bracelet.

LAST-MINUTE GIFT FOR HIM
The fastest way to his heart could be through his sock drawer.

THE ONLY SWEATER WITH A HEART ON IT THAT
HE’LL ACTUALLY WEAR

The PLAY Comme des Garçons® cardigan. We see tons of guys wearing this around
our office. (Bonus: You can totally steal it from him.)

BEST RETRO VALENTINE
Afraid to profess your love? Let a pack of Sweethearts do the talking.

VALENTINE 2.0
Send a valentine (or valentines—we won’t tell). We’re partial to the
assortment from Paperless Post.

MAKE-OUT MIX

PICTURE FRAMES ARE SO 2011
We love the Memorybox from Printstagram, which will turn all your Instagrams
into mini-prints. And StickyGram turns your favorite Instagrams into magnets for

BEST WAY TO FAKE A HOME-COOKED MEAL
A trip to Eataly. (We suggest the rotisserie chicken or fresh-made pasta.)

OR COOK DINNER—TOGETHER
If you have a pint-size apartment, woo each other (and escape dish-washing duty)
by making dinner together somewhere else. Check out the cooking class
schedules at Haven’s Kitchen, Sur La Table or the Brooklyn Kitchen.
